Mayor Jones helps San Marcos businesses transform operations to adhere to Purple Tier

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego County has been forced back into the most restrictive, Purple Tier, of Governor Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan.

The move back to Purple means our local businesses will once again have to make adjustments to adhere to the new restrictions. A lot of businesses have told KUSI News over the last few weeks that they fear closing down again, would mean closing down forever. The business owners have explained over and over that they simply can’t continue making these adjustments and be able to stay open.

San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones feels their frustrations and is doing everything she can to help them make the necessary adjustments to comply with the orders.

Mayor Jones joined KUSI News to share why she isn’t a fan of the statewide orders. “Even our County Health Officer, Wilma Wooten, did not agree with our Governor. That was witnessed in our adjudication request that she filed on November 5th, which was unfortunately denied. But she said, the cases are not due to the businesses that are being now forced out in the Purple Tier.”

Mayor Jones said her city is doing everything they can to help businesses move operations outside in order to remain open.
